Bouncing Worlds is an eccentric tale along the lines of Gulliver's Travels and Alice in Wonderland. The main character, Johnny, is young man with infinite possibilities and one day he finds out a way to explore them all by Bouncing.

Bouncing is the ability to visit an alternate universe to discover new realms of possibility. This book is filled with a wacky hodgepodge of assorted impossibilities that will amaze you, and enough amateur philosophy to make you think (well, it depends on how smart you are). Basically, there is a lot going on in this book, and that may not appeal to everyone. However, ADD and ADHD sufferers will love it with the constantly shifting worlds and impossible-seeming adventures.

The writing style can be pretentious and frustrating to plow through. It seems that every adjective in the world is used two or three times to describe every detail; Elroy should learn to use a smaller paintbrush when creating his worlds. However, once you get used to the writing style you’ll be able to sit back and enjoy each insane adventure.
